Chêne SA, a provider of non-destructive testing (NDT) services in Europe for more than 20 years, is expanding its reach into the U.S. and Canada. Chêne SA focuses on machining artificial defects on metal pieces, which are then used as reference standard models for NDT. Such testing using ultrasonics, Eddy currents, or other methods is carried out using highly precise electrical discharge machining. The company is able to produce notches as narrow as 0.0008 in and holes with a diameter as small as 0.0008 in on a variety of metal pieces. Chêne SA recently established an office in Montreal, as well as a local branch, Chêne Canada Inc.

The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
NRL scientists have demonstrated metallic spin filtering at room temperature using ferromagnet-graphene-ferromagnet thin film junction devices.
Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
